Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
How long can you stand the heat?

Yes!

Red Sox are up 2-0. Stick a fork in the Rockies.

But, more importantly (to me), BC beat Virginia Tech on a last second touchdown pass down in Blacksburg, Virginia. This is HUGE. I am pretty sure BC has never been ranked this high. I think in the Flutie era they peaked at # 4.

GO BC!!

As is per usual of late, we had a beautiful Indian Summer during the week, and as the weekend approaches, it is cold and snowing/raining. I spent a nice day up in Helena with Charlie-friend-of-Husker (that is his native american name). (Maybe I should have called it "native american summer?")

Charlie showed me around Helena, which has some beautiful, historic buildings, including the 100 year old Windbag Saloon. It is set in a gulch, and you can be in the mountains in a few minutes from Charlie's house.

He showed me some trails and drove me up and down a couple of really pretty drainages where he likes to get out and run.

It was a nice afternoon. Thanks, Charlie.

If it stays crappy, I will probably spend umpteen hours learning umpteen Christmas songs. There is this "Christmas Stroll" event in Bozeman, which is pretty much like it sounds. We were asked to play at a friend's business downtown.

Naturally, I started making suggesting songs I already knew.

"Is Dead Flowers a Christmas song?"

No, it isn't, and neither is anything by Nirvana or the White Stripes.

"How about Plush?"

It's about a serial killer, Joe.

"Well... we could make it Christmas-y."

So, anyway, I'll be learning Santa, Baby and whatever the name of the "Chestnuts roasting" song is...

It will be good for me. See, like the rest of America, I fear the unfamiliar.

I think we'll learn some others that could be considered vaguely Christmas-y, like Imagine.

And maybe some late-era, fat Elvis choreography as well.

Because I need to wear a body suit, sweat profusely and pull a groin with some karate kicks.

Feliz Navidad (a la Jose Feliciano) is easy. Then there's Jingle Bell Rock. In general, I shudder at the thought of hearing Christmas music everywhere again for two solid months, but the thought of you playing it makes me giggle. Have fun!

The ultimate Christmas songs are either Never Again or Figured you out by Nickelback!

Dude: I hang with the shoulder season stuff. With Husker an empty nester too, I say we don't have any reason not to get his goddamn ass out here in whatever season is cool. Good times at the 'Bag. Let is snow. Let it snow. Let it snow. Did I mention Let It Snow--

Dude, glad you made it home safe. I was worried when I interupted the order for a large fry. Charlie I get the message. Let me work on it -- by the way you owe me a return phone call.
